Inspired by the maritime theme within Ian Hamilton Finlay's work we will explore angular mark-making, experiment using block printing colours, mixing inks and layering to create a lino-print in this adult workshop. We will also look at Finlay's playfulness with words to form a short personal sea-inspired poem that you can incorporate into your print. Bring a photo of a seashore or maritime scene to work from. With artist Rachael Forbes.

Booking is essential – book online or phone the City Art Centre on 0131 529 3993.
